From the Author

My publisher sent me to Las Vegas for 3 days to research this book. I toured the soup kitchens, medical clinics and tent cities of the homeless, as well as the casinos and clubs. There are homeless people in Las Vegas - lots of them. Could one be an angel in disguise? Just ask Chester Holte...

Nobody was absolutely riveting from the opening scene to the final page. With compelling characters, a plot that surprised me at every turn, and a subtle, yet profound message that moved me to tears, this book goes straight to the top of my highly recommended list.

(P.S. This was a huge page-turner, but NOT nightmare inducing, a fact I appreciate since it kept me up reading till late into the night!)

Far from the glittery world of superstar Everett Lester explored in his first two books, The Rock Star Chronicles, Creston Mapes takes us into the not-so-glamorous lives of the Las Vegas homeless community in his latest release, Nobody.

Hudson Ambrose, a reporter for the Las Vegas Review-Journal, responds to a call on the police scanner about a potential shooting at the Civic Center North bus stop. First on the scene, Hud finds the dead body of a homeless man sitting on the bus stop bench. When the police are slow to arrive, Hud decides to go through the man's pockets, looking for any information that might help him with a story. When he finds a bankbook with a balance of $689,000 and a safe deposit box key, he is shocked. While disgusted with himself for stealing from a homeless man, Hud flees the scene with the items; certain there is a blockbuster story in the making. But Hud has no idea what a hornet's nest of trouble his split-second decision will stir up, and how his investigation into the life of one homeless man will alter his own life forever.

If I were to give Creston Mapes' books an underlying theme, it would be Romans 3:22: "We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are" (NLT). From rock stars to homeless men, Mapes has a special talent for creating genuine and compelling characters on authentic journeys of faith--powerfully portraying Christ's love, mercy and redemptive power for all of His children. Creston Mapes, with consistently skillful writing, has become one of the authors whose new books are automatically included on my to-be-read list. If you enjoy page-turning suspense and well-written characters--a story that will not only entertain but also challenge your thinking--then Nobody is the book for you.

Armchair Interviews says: Creston Mapes does it again.

Nobody was an enjoyable read. I read it all in one sitting. Each character seemed real and distinct. However, each chapter had a different character's first person view point. I found it annoying trying to adjust to the constant changing of the people talking. Sometimes it would take several sentences before I realized it was not the main character's point of view, but another character's view point. Overall, I enjoyed reading Nobody and am willing to try another book by this author.

NOBODY, by Creston Mapes, is a Christian suspense novel that starts out with a bang but later crumbles under its own weight of unbelievable characters and outright preaching. Hudson Ambrose is a 34-year-old reporter who hears the reports of an injured man sitting at a bus stop in the middle of the night. Hudson arrives at the scene, hoping for a story. But instead he finds a dead man, and Hudson proceeds to make the biggest mistake of his life. He searches the dead man's pockets.

Hudson finds out the dead man is Chester Holt. He has a bank book in his pocket that states he has a balance of half a million dollars. He also finds a safety deposit box key and later that day discovers tons of cash in the box. Why did this homeless man have so much money, and who killed him? As Hudson investigates the life of Chester Holte, he meets Holly Queens, a beautiful woman who was helped by Chester. He also meets a bunch of other people who loved Chester. By searching Chester however, Hudson leaves him vulnerable to being set up for the murder, and this novel is about Hudson trying to prove his innocence, find out who killed Chester, and find meaning in his life as well.

Why I didn't like the novel: This is always hard for me to write, because the novel contains an excellent message about what it means to be a Christian, and the character of Chester Holte is a perfect example. There are other Christian lessons to be learned such as those of forgiveness and the true role of the church in the community. However, these great messages can be lost when the story around it is so poorly told. Below are a few examples.

Holly Queens is sweet, good-natured Christian who for some reason has a boyfriend who beats her and abuses her.

I read the book "Nobody" and thoroughly enjoyed it. It kept up the suspense throughout and the ending was a complete surprise. I enjoyed the variety of story lines that were intertwined and was happy that they were adequately resolved before the end of the book.

My only negative comment is that the religious aspect I felt was dragged out a bit too long and had too much emphasis on it in the later chapters. It really wasn't a major issue in the beginning but then began to drag on. I knew what the outcome was going to be and I just kept wishing he would get there so I could find out the "real " ending of the book.
